Senior Club Championships
The senior club championships got off to a good start last Sunday with a lot of matches in all competitions being played during the past week. Finals day will be September 26th or 27th depending on the weather conditions. All first round defeated players will be entered in plate competitions. Events are the best of three sets but the third set may be a champion’s tie break, first to reach ten but must win by two.
Men may organise championship matches, every Monday night, the ladies may do the same every Wednesday night and mixed doubles matches may be organised during Thursday and Sunday mixed doubles booked times, preferably doubles matches during these times. Members may cancel a club booking and organise championship match.
